    The Latest Pull - Cory Robinson Sep 20, 2014

    If you wanted any information about the Futures End series or the upcoming Earth 2 weekly book and especially what happened to Bruce and Clark, then pick up this issue. If you also wanted a great Batman issue, please pick this book up as it is one of most touching issues I have read in a long time. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Corbin Pool Sep 18, 2014

    Batman gets some Kryptonite to lure Metallo, and this works. Metallo consumes the Kryptonite, but it overloads his system, and he shuts down. Batman has also re-broken his back. And it ends saying that Superman was too good, and the world will have to settle for Batman. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Ian Yoxon Sep 20, 2014

    All in all this was a really good issue. Batman Superman Futures End #1 uses what we know about Futures End in a way that anyone can get into without reading the actual series. I highly suggest anyone who enjoys Superman and Batman stories to go buy Batman Superman Futures End #1 for a story that doesn't happen a lot in a DC Comic. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Sep 17, 2014

    Batman/Superman: Futures End #1 proves to be a deep look into the breakdown in partnership between the Word's Finest, with Greg Pak delivering a powerful script that comes highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Even with an absent Superman, this comic captures much of the appeal of the main series. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Sep 22, 2014

    It seems that the current comic world has put Batman up on a pedestal. It has made him all-powerful and uber-cool. It has made him him look brilliant while making Superman look naive and moronic. This is the first comic I have seen in a while to show that a world where Batman is the inspiration is going to be a a dark place. For that reason only, I have to applaud this book. Too bad the undercurrent of why this happens is that Superman has gone into hiding, something I don't think Superman would do. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Myke Ladiona Sep 23, 2014

    Unlike the dull confusion of Earth-2, the cryptic nature of Batman/Superman is actually intriguing. What happened during the "invasion"? What the hell was it? What dumb wolf would be crazy enough to attack Krypto? Pak's set ups and questions are written with the confidence of someone who seems like he'd pay them off well. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jesse Kennedy Sep 20, 2014

    If you want details right now about the events that take place during the Earth 2 war, then this will disappoint. Like the rest of theseFutures EndMonth titles, the is little furthering of a “future” plot. It asks more questions than it answers. The beauty of this issue, though, is that you don't have to have all the answers to feel the tension between Bruce and Clark. Reading it with wide eyes and not expecting to have the world turned upside down will make this comic more enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - The Nerd Sep 18, 2014

    Another aspect of this book that turned me off was having three artists working on it. Even though the art styles are similar, I still found it distracting and difficult to focus on. One high note was the few pages involving the battle between Batman and Metallo, a true David and Goliath matchup. For a one-shot book, my over-all impression isn't too lively and I can only hope that other titles in the Futures End event are more gratifying. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 23, 2014

    Batman/Superman: Futures End #1 is an unecessary book held back by the Futures End Event it is supposed to be a part of.  Superman is missing and Batman is trying to carry on without him.  It'd be a bit easier if he wasn't torn apart at the seams himself, but when does Batman care about easy?  The score below is indicative of how I felt about the issue, but doesn't express my feelings for writer Greg Pak.  He literally had the odds stacked against him and made something (almost) good out of a bad situation.  It's still not good enough for me to recommend it to any one but a Futures End completest.
